  1. Have you set dates yet for this residency? If not, will you announce them before the October 15 application deadline? Thanks!

    1. Hi Sasha,
      Great question! There’s no set date for the residency; we’ll work with the chosen applicant to find a time that works with their schedule. We anticipate that the residency will likely fall between March and April.

  2. Hi! Are you open to collaborative applications (e.g. academic staff and a faculty member) to give different perspectives?

    1. Jen,
      Great question. We are certainly open to collaborative applications including multiple perspectives. We know as well as anyone the benefits and challenges of collaboration between faculty and academic staff. Thanks!

  3. Hi – I’m considering making a proposal. Could you please clarify something for me? Are you looking for three days worth of activity (i.e. a three day workshop) in the proposal? Or just one day with time set aside for meetings, etc. I think it makes a difference in terms of planning activities, etc. Thanks

    1. Hi Rob! Thanks for your comment – We are looking for up to 3 days worth of activity. One day would be a presentation, one day a workshop and meetings if applicable, and a third day for wrap up if needed. We look forward to your application!
